Greencard Ladies Golf Breaks 2018 – Accommodation

The Manor House Hotel

Long before the new Resort was built, the historic Manor House was recognised to be one of the finest hotels in the United Kingdom. It was awarded the Egon Ronay’s top prize for five consecutive years.

This beautiful 19th century building has retained much of its original character and historic period features such as sweeping double width wooden staircase, stained glass windows, luxurious wood paneling and open fireplaces.

The bedrooms have recently been beautifully re-designed to give a modern, stylish new look featuring chic and stylish décor and stunning en-suites with warm towels, a bath, shower and luxury toiletries. Being just a few metres away from the large main hotel the atmosphere within the Manor House is much more personal and private giving the feel of a charming country house retreat break with close friends.

The magnificent Manor House is also home to two restaurants including Cen, Asian inspired cuisine by Larkin Cen, 2013 finalist of BBC’s MasterChef and two bars where you can relax together on deep comfortable sofas and enjoy an early evening, or late night, cocktail!

All of the Celtic Manor facilities are within a short distance and can be accessed within minutes, so if you’ve booked a spa treatment, have a dining reservation or need to get to the first tee you will never be far away.

For what we are hoping to create from this event we think the Manor House will provide a perfect venue where you can enjoy the luxury of the larger resort, but also relax within a more intimate environment.

Montgomerie Golf Course

Offering a spectacular par 69 challenge, the legendary Colin Montgomerie has called on all his Ryder Cup experience to create a course with many exciting tests of strategy. Spectacular views abound with dramatic tee shots over valleys and breathtaking downhill shots.

The spectacular 3rd Hole was featured in the book “1001 Golf Holes You Must Play Before You Die”.  The course also includes two long par fives, a number of short scoring opportunity par fours and testing par threes – it all adds up to an exciting and rewarding challenge.

Roman Road

Opened in 1995 this was ranked ‘the top inland course in Wales’ by Golf Monthly Magazine. Overlooking the Severn Estuary with views across to Somerset and Devon, it is named after the many Roman roads that criss-cross it and was shaped to avoid disrupting any remains.

The course was host venue for The Celtic Manor Wales Open from 2005 to 2007 and has held several other pro tournaments.  The Roman Road golf course is bordered by woodland, and presents challenging features including some long open fairways plus a number of twists and turns through trees and across lakes and streams.
